April 14 – Local author Jim Petipaw talks about how he began his career as a children’s book author. Jim has always been creating art. When he was a kid he would often be found drawing cars, animals or boats. Throughout his teen and college years he was creating music as a drummer in a few local bands. About ten years ago Jim’s daughters encouraged him to illustrate and publish a children’s picture book based on a song he co-wrote in high school. This led to the fruition of, “The Cows Go Moo!” Jim also went into the studio and recorded the song that accompanies the book. Jim is still an adolescent & family counselor, and is working towards writing, illustrating and publishing more books and songs in The Cow Go Moo series. He is also working on a graphic novel about his dad’s life story called, “Jimmy Bojangles: The Prodigal Dad.” Jim is looking forward to sharing more of his story about becoming a children’s book author and publisher. He along with his wife Beth, two daughters; Olivia and Sophia and dog Earl live in Bedford, Massachusetts.
